URBANA — WILL-TV will broadcast at 7 p.m. Monday the WILL-made documentary, "Course Work: Dinner Season at Prairie Fruits Farm," which focuses on the activities on the farm that lead to the night of one of its farm-to-table dinners.
From June to October, WILL-TV followed the arc of a farm-to-table meal that began and ended at the farm in rural Champaign.

Many people associate Hanukkah with December, but last week Hanukkah coincided with Thanksgiving for the first time since 1888.
(The next time will be in 2070, so for many, this was a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.)
This is another recipe from Champaign resident Jennifer Wilson. I'm a sucker for casseroles, so I'm especially excited about this one.
It's a great idea for using up the last of your turkey this week, or for when you pull the leftovers out of your freezer.
GIFFORD — Less than two weeks after a tornado lifted the home of Vicki and Jack Russell off its foundation with them inside, the Gifford couple sat down to an abundant Thanksgiving feast in Vicki's onetime home church.

Here are a couple more recipes for you to make with your Thanksgiving leftovers.
"Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin; but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God." Romans 6:12-13
I've been hitting the leftover Thanksgiving recipes hard this year, mostly because my readers are sending in amazing ideas. Plus, I've covered Thanksgiving Day recipes pretty heavily in the past - you can view those by clicking here.
This recipe comes from Champaign resident Jennifer Wilson, who submitted several wonderful-sounding recipes to make with your Thanksgiving leftovers. I'll be sharing more of them as this week progresses.
